Source: Democrats Wrong to Think Islam Not Violent, American Pastors Network Prez Says

With statistics from a recent CBS Poll pointing out that the majority of Democrats do not believe that Islam is any more violent than Christianity and other faiths, the president of the American Pastors Network has warned that people are engaging in a purposeful denial of facts.

The poll last week, conducted by telephone among a random sample of 1,019 adults nationwide, with a margin of error of 4 points, found that only 33 percent of respondents believe that the Islamic religion encourages violence more so than other religions.

There was a sharp partisan split in the responses, as with a number of other questions in the poll, as 63 percent of Republicans argued that Islam is more violent — while only 14 percent of Democrats agreed. The majority, or 66 percent of Democrats, said that Islam encourages violence “the same amount” as other faiths.

Sam Rohrer, who serves as president of both the Pennsylvania and American Pastors Networks, told The Christian Post in a phone interview on Tuesday that such a view is reflective of a “purposeful denial of facts.”

He accused Democrats and others who do not recognize that Islam is more prone to terrorism and violence of either “not having done their homework,” or of ignoring the truth.

Rohrer also said such views are down to the “secular humanist mentality that is occupying the West generally, in thinking that all people worship the same God, or there is no God, or all gods are equal.”

He warned that if someone does not find a difference between the God of Islam and the God of Christianity, for instance, then they are going to “interpret facts and reality totally different from the way it really is.”

Rohrer acknowledged that when it comes to the Middle East especially, most victims of Islamic terror are other Muslims, but pushed back against those who believe that only a very small number of Muslims actually engage in jihad.

“The view for a long time has been that jihadists, wherever they are, are not at all reflective of Islam, and these are only a small number, who don’t speak for Islam,” he said.

“The unfortunate thing about that is that those involved in jihad are the only ones who are really practicing what the Quran says,” the minister continued.

“It’s violent all the away around, the total opposite of Christianity, the opposite of what the Bible speaks about. Yet, because there are many who either don’t want to know, or don’t do their own homework,” they come to believe that “well, ‘everybody is equal,’ when the reality is these various systems of belief are totally different.”

Rohrer told CP it is a “great mistake” to believe that Islam is primarily a religion, just like Christianity, Buddhism, and others.

“That is totally wrong, because Islam is primarily a political, legal system. It has religious tenets, but it is a political system accompanied by Sharia law, which by its very commandments,” he said, prohibits Islam from coexisting in peace with others.

Rohrer had plenty to say on that subject matter, however, and first explained that he supports Trump’s policies, describing them “in every way a fulfillment of his duty to the American people, and his God-given duty to enact justice, which includes the protection of the citizens of this nation.”

The APN leader said that the executive order is “absolutely appropriate,” and that it is in compliance with both the American Constitution, as well as with biblical and moral truth.

And while Roher agreed that Christians “have an obligation to the stranger and the foreigner, “to “reach out, bind up their wounds, make them whole” – the problem is the “confusion of the application of this principle.”

“There is a difference of jurisdiction that must be understood to understand this principle. God gives authority to four institutions He has created: the individual, the family, the civil government, an then the church at large.”

He insisted that while it is the role of the individual and the church to communicate “the Good News of Jesus Christ,” the government’s responsibility is not “primarily compassion,” but enacting justice.

Roher noted that a number of Christians are pointing to the parable of the Good Samaritan, as told by Jesus in the Gospel of Luke, as well as Old Testament accounts of Israel openings its doors to foreigners, as an example for why people should welcome refugees.

He highlighted, however, that in those accounts, the immigrant seeking refuge is someone who says “I want to be a Jew,” and wants to assimilate into that culture and follow its laws – something which he suggested people who truly follow the Islamic faith, and the rules of Sharia law, cannot do when coming to America.

Give this man a job. ASAP.

  1. When you tell liberals what the Quran teaches, they counter with “that’s has been mistranslated.” Europeans and Americans need to learn Islam’s doctrines that allow LYING to advance Islam (taqueyia) and the temporary suspension of sharia to fool infidels into thinking Muslims can be “moderate (the doctrine of muruna). Here is what all Muslims that follow the Quran, believe: Can anyone say “Trojan Horse”?
    Koran 2:191 “Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them.”
    Koran 3:28 “Muslims must not take the infidels as friends.”
    Koran 3:85 “Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable.”
    Koran 5:33 “Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam.”
    Koran 8:12 “Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Koran.”
    Koran 8:60 “Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorize the infidels.”
    Koran 8:65 “The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them.”
    Koran 9:5 “When the opportunity arises kill the infidels.”
    Koran 9:30 “The Jews and Christians are perverts, fight them.”
    Koran 9:123 “Make war on the infidels living in your neighborhood.”
    Koran 22:19 “Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water, melt their skin and bellies.”
    Koran 47:4 “Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them.”
    The difference between “Moderates” and “Radicals” are that the Moderates want the Radicals to kill you and the radicals want to kill you themselves. They all share the same Quran, go to the same Mosques, have the same Imams, and share the same Islam. The followers of Islam have been killing since the 7th Century and their goal is to take over the world. Just the truth but it is ignored.

  2. Obviously those Democrats don’t understand that Christians have a Commandment from God which says : “THOU SHALT NOT KILL” if they are capable of making the statement that Muslims are no more violent than other religions! By the way, Muslimism is not a religion. The word Religion, in its root sense means ‘a binding to God’ Allah is not God. They are praying to someone else who is not very nice.

  3. I don’t see why it’s so fucking hard to tell these guys No! Its not hard to tell them that have responsibility to us and this country. It perfectly fine to chastise Muslims who commit terrorists acts by telling them that this is unacceptable. Instead, a Muslim shoots a bunch of people, and we get warned about possible backlash. We catch hell for it all. Their presence has caused turmoil. They simply aren’t worth the trouble.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
